Nokia Lumia 820

I just got myself a free Nokia Lumia 820, but dont really know much about them. I got my first smart phone back in Sept. a Galaxy SII on straight talk. From what I have read online tonight I can put my sim card into the phone and use it. I like the SII that I have but it is all I know other than briefly using friends other phones.

What I am mainly concerned about on the Lumia is the availability of apps and such. I see most apps say they work on Droid and Apple, but no mention of Windows, or really hearing anything about this operating system.

So people in the know, would you keep the phone?

I replaced my droid incredible with a Nokia 822 a week ago and have been very impressed. The battery life is easily 1.25 to 1.5 days between charging and I haven't needed to reboot the phone yet in the 7 days I've own it. The simple tile interface does work well and it has most of the major apps I used on the droid (Glympse, You Tube, Facebook, Twitter, IMDB). If there are apps that aren't currently supported that you would need then the decision is harder.

I'm a .net developer so I'd like to see Microsoft do well and bought one as a sign of support but if it doesn't get the developer support/customer base then I'll go back to the droid at some point.
